BOSTON — J.D. Drew had two hits, including an eighth-inning double that put David Ortiz in position to score the tiebreaking run, and the Boston Red Sox rallied from a pair of deficits to beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 6-5, on Friday night.

Toronto led 3-0 and 5-3 on two more home runs against struggling Red Sox starter Josh Beckett, but twice Boston came back to tie it.

Toronto shortstop Marco Scutaro left after being hit in the head by a pitch from Beckett in the fourth inning. The Blue Jays said Scutaro had no symptoms other than a bruise.
